TESOL Course Evaluation Form #2

From the first begining, TESOL websites, videos, instructors impressed me a lot. So that I am eager to learn more things if I have spare time. The feeling like this hasn’t existed in my heart for a long time. So I just want to say it is an excellent one among those kinds of institutions, so professional.

I really enjoyed and learned a lot from the videos. I think there should be more videos watching other instructors teach in their TESOL classrooms.
Thank You!

TESOL Course Evaluation Form #15

I thought the course was very good. I would like to have had a bit more practical lessons, though, like how do you actually teach pronunciation. I have not had a chance to watch a lot of the videos, so perhaps they would have been a source for the more practical aspects of TESOL.
